Absolutely agree on experience level (at the FO level as well) and changes for the better by exerting positive influence. Good man!

I was pressured multiple times not to write things up by mx control while at Boutique, but I did it anyway because I am comfortable making those choices. Heck, I'm the reason that PDX got a deice cart, AC cart, and some chairs for non-local pilots to rest in on the long sits (the chairs kinda suck, unfortunately, but they recline which was better than what we had before). Things actually changed for the better whenever I put my foot down, but I was always concerned that many captains with less experience making decisions didn't have the courage to do the same for fear of retribution.

Not good. You have the second to last standby priority code. Using the ZED fairs on international flights are typically much easier because the flights aren’t as full. Domestic is much tougher, especially going to places like Hawaii.

Schedules are basically the same, no matter which domicile you are based in. You go to work, fly back and forth, spend the night at an outstation then return home after flying back and forth the next day.

At least that's how they said it should be when I joined.


In reality it quickly became go to work, fly back and forth, spend the night at an outstation. Then wake up, fly all day, and spend another night in the outstation. Then wake up and if you're lucky fly a half day and go home- or fly all damn day and spend another night in the outstation. Then maybe fly half a day and go home. Drop off dry cleaning, pick up dry cleaning, sleep, repeat.



As a low seniority guy at ATL, you might expect to get sent to PIT and BOS when the need arises. (And MSS is no fun this time of year....)

Default PC-12 training

Is all PC-12 initial training done in Denver? You stay in a house, not a hotel room? What are chances of getting DFW base as PC-12 CA? How many overnights a month? Are junior CA's sitting on full month reserve?

Thanks for info. Phone interview on Friday.

Once you go home, how many days off do you typically get before you go back to work? A while back I read that the schedules are usually 4on/3off with a minimum of 12 days off, so not sure if this has changed.
